Eracing used to be all about Zwift. Not anymore, as this year more virtual cycling platforms gained online exposure during the Pandemic of 2002.

Cyclists aren't renowned for having great tastes in music but luckily for you, we're not normal cyclists. Nobody wants to race to the whining of pop-stars, glam rockers or worse.... Snow Patrol! So we put together a playlist of some ruffneck drum & bass tunes to match the pace and ferocity of an eRa...

On Sunday, we witnessed an event truly like no other – and something that surely would never have happened if it weren’t for the current crisis.

It seems to be the month for podcasts! Hot on the heels of our own podcast is the Zwift podcast with Matt Rowe.

Whilst all the focus might be on the Tour de Zwift, it's worth noting that the final race in the DBR Heino Cup happened last week. Sadly it is not a league we were able to commit to 100% as there was also an overlap with the Fusion League during some of the races last year.

In January 2019, Canyon launched the world's first professional eRacing team ahead of Zwift's first 'Community' and 'Super' leagues.
